Our History

The Ulster Weaving Company was originally founded in 1880.
Over the next 130 years it has evolved from spinner, weaver, dyer and finisher to its’ present position today as the leading Irish Linen supplier.

The Ulster Weaving Company was divided into Ulster Weavers Home Fashions and Ulster Weavers Apparel in 1990, and Both companies continue to operate today as separate entities.

Over the years Ulster Weaver Apparel has made a number of acquisitions which complemented the existing business and enhanced the product offerring.

In 1992, the acquisition of Spence Bryson Linens took place and gave Ulster Weavers a fully stock supported range of fine linens.

In 2001 the purchase of Moygashel gave Ulster Weavers a foothold in the Furnishings marketplace.
Both brands continue to form the backbone of the business today.
